First time trip with my mister plus a big birthday: pressure was on for boutique digs without any foolishness that might cancel out the rustic/rural vibe. Lovely/swell luck to have shambled onto the Squam Lake Inn...pitch perfect start to finish! These guys continue to best themselves and they totally have it down: dovetailing sublime service and quality into the quietude... More

Clean, efficient service...truly delicious dinners! Make a reservation. Loved the little library full of local helpful information. Quite nearby to great canoing. I would encourage a re-do of the walking directions given to us to get to a lake on college avenue...it didn't say how many paths there were to,follow or how long it would take to get there. However... More

If you need something, anything at all, just ask. They will provide! This place is awesome and everyone was very willing to make certain that our experience here rivaled that of staying with family. I cannot say enough good things!

Sarah is a fantastic bartender. Breakfasts are incredible. Owners are wonderful. Manager Molly is super accommodating and sweet. Can't recommend this place any higher -- book early and make sure you take to the trails and kayak on the lakes. Fabulous trip.

My wife and I love Squam Lake and go there often. The places we prefer to stay were not accessible so we booked at the Squam Lake Inn for the first time. What a lovely surprise. We had eaten at the restaurant a few times previously, so we were familiar with the location. The Inn is very low-key place that... More

This was our first trip to the Squam Lake Inn. The staff was wonderful. They waited for us to arrive and we were greeted with warmth and friendliness. Our room was quiet and tucked away. Although the bedroom was small, it was nicely done and the bathroom was roomy. We loved having coffee on the front porch in the morning.... More
